is the cost for that financial crisis solution which is austerity meaning very lackluster economic environment unlikely to see any acceleration there. so look forward is where we see the weaker picture, again not the end of a bull market. i think that that would be only the case if maybe pes were around 17 or 18 where they usually are. still have room ahead. >> let me jump up. let me jump in because we have a less than 30 seconds. you heard suzanne's package, individual investors feel like i have to get into this market because i don't want to miss out. quickly what are you telling your investors what they should do and still be safe about it, real quickly. >> there were good opportunities to buy on the pullback, we don't see a bear market. you want to look to buy industrial stocks from the manufacturing recovery, home builders from that long-term uptick in housing activity, those are good places to add as the market pulls back. >> we'll see how it plays out, thanks. jeff kleintop, chief market strategist at lpl financial. >> tom: stocks weren't the only market seeing some selling pressure. si
